Well.. Today is a sad and exciting day all at the same time.
Today is the day, I retire the Huffster.
It was a really good run.
And by a "good run" I mean, I am not quite coordinated enough to ride a bike as cool as you.
You know there were bad times.
Like the multiples times I have fallen off of you due to a mixture of insecurity, lack of experience, and fast moving cars.
And then there were the other bad times I suffered severe anxiety attacks by riding you through our beloved city streets.
Your breaks don't work.
Your tires are too skinny for all this woman.
Come to think of it, the only good times was that one time I saw you on Craigslist and you looked cool, so I bought you.
We just weren't meant to be.
You'll always have a special place in my heart....
So there is the sad part.
But there is also an exciting part... And THAT my friends, is my new love.
She's a cruiser.
And from what I gather, that is like the "non-biker"s bike.
Which is totally me.
She has enough girth in those tires to carry me through the streets to safety.
She's got enough strength in her frame to carry a basket full of groceries, without threatening my life.
Sh'es yellow. So cool. Duh.
Sh'es all that I never knew I needed.
She get's dropped off today at 12pm. I'm excited!
Happy Monday, Thriftarians!!!
